Artist's Statement

These works are interpretations of sylvan architecture found in specific trees I've met in New York State using paint, paper, burlap, and sawdust. They are subjective portraits that should be immediate and approachable and question what is real. They are not, however, intended as science. The "Sylvan Natural History of New York" is a growing vocabulary of smaller dimensional paintings in the format of family crests, made of acrylic paint, paper, and sawdust. The individual pieces can be combined to present a great deal of visual information that evoke early displays of anatomical wax models such as those from collections like Museo La Specola. This sort of Sylvan Heraldry is also inspired by an exhaustive series of hand colored books started in 1842 titled "The Natural History of New York" that attempted, in thirty volumes, over the course of more than fifty years, to depict all things flora and fauna of New York State.
